The competition runs on April 14-16, and features the country’s best varsity collegiate programs.
Twenty-one teams of female student-athletes from colleges and universities across the United States compete in the NCEA. The NCEA National Championship will feature Dual and Single Discipline Team Championships, with Dual teams bringing Jumping Seat and Western riders, and Single Discipline teams featuring Jumping Seat riders.

The 2022 NCEA National Championship hosts eight Dual Discipline teams competing for the championship from Auburn University, Baylor University, Fresno State, Oklahoma State University, Southern Methodist University, Texas A&M University, Texas Christian University, and University of Georgia.
The Single Discipline Championship will have teams from four schools, including SUNY New Paltz, Sweet Briar College, the University of Lynchburg, and the University of the South.
H&C will offer the “Get My Clip” service for the NCEA National Championship, enabling competitors to visit the H&C website and purchase clips of their rides for $25 per clip. You don’t have to be an H&C+ member to purchase your clip, but with an annual H&C+ Gold Membership, available for $249.99, riders can download all of their clips at no additional charge.
The entire competition will be available for H&C+ members to watch on-demand shortly after the live event.

I’d also like to express my gratitude to the Roberts family and the outstanding staff at the World Equestrian Center. The NCEA remains committed to the growth of collegiate equestrian at every NCAA division level. The opportunities the sport provides to young women across the country cannot be overlooked.
